Who're some of the old site members you remember? Why do you remember them? Opinions?
And what do you think about the member's that're active now in comparason to the "good ol' days"?
Drakoblare. Funny guy and the closest thing we've probably ever had to an openly proud fascist on here. (Aside from that Stormfronter author who denied being a white supremacist like a bitch and Kain's fake Nazi account)
Jiehlu. Degenerate furry sociopath. Could still be amusing at times though. JJJ banned him.
Marmotlord. Claimed he was the best video game "athlete" of all time due to having all the highest scores on Kongregate. Argued repeatedly that video games were a sport. Disappeared while he was having health problems, but apparently the last time JJJ checked , he was still alive.
I miss arguing with Marmotlord about whether video games are a sport or not...
But it's not an sport. It's for entertainment...
Yeah, the fact that this was so obvious to everyone except him was the reason why it was so enjoyable.
I might have laughed a little when I read the "video game athlete" and "video games are sports" part only to see that it's followed by a "he's having health problems" part.
His last post was 2006, so I never interacted with him. I'm pretty sure I unpublished one or two of his stories during the Great Story Purge of 2016.
That's the thing. When I first came on, just about every one of those stories in his profile were published. They slowly started getting undone when people realized that you couldn't be grandfathered in from the days when CYS didn't have standards.
Ford being earnest? Oh, we’re edit locking this. XD
But... yeah. Came for the storygames, stayed for the people. Swift, Aman, Drak, Silver, & others more hazy in memory. Miss you crazy kids... PM me if you ever read this.
Yeah, Jihelu sort of had the bad luck of fucking around at the wrong time. He probably shouldn’t have been banned.
Of course like a dumb ass, he kept making alts immediately after his banning calling JJJ a motherfucker and such which pretty much sealed his fate.
To be honest, I'm actually honored to have been remembered as one of the best forum-gamers around, it actually brings a tear to my eye. To be honest, I'm actually happy that I've been remembered at all considering that I haven't really been on that much recently.
Also, I'm back... again!
Yeah, well, I come here from time to time to check what's new to the site. And when I saw a thread about old site members I immediately checked it to see if anyone I knew was mentioned and needless to say, I was surprised to see that I was the one of the people being mentioned.
Quiller? Annnnny chance you're talking about this one? (I mean, pretty far-fetched, but the name reminds me of someone I watched a while ago because of Becoming Legend and it seems like a rather unique username.)
And.... "Kiel was my favorite of six mothers who birthed me simultaneously from their thicc milf loins (cannon)." ?????
That's... rather odd. Um. Who're the other 5? XD
I think you are right because I have vague memories of those characters being used here a couple years back.
I have a bad memory too; I blame the meningitis. Anyhow, the problem with hoping your bad memory sweeps this post away is that...well...it's still here so the rest of us will remember it, even if you don't. ;)
Yeah, I imagine killing your cousin by pushing him off a mountain might be something you'd want to block out.
Well, I didn't really mean three years later, but okay.
As for me, I really hate when people remember things about me that I don't. Again, I blame the meningitis. Apparently when it got me I kicked a police officer because all my higher functions were gone and I was pretty much CAVE WOMAN for a few minutes before they hauled me to the hospital and put me in a coma.
And no, I'm not kidding.
It's probably just his brother hijacking his account again.
Well, now i just feel nostalgia.
I haven't been around for long (2 years is small by CYS standards), but I remember the days when Briar, Kiel, James, the forumbkids, and Seth were around. The only one I miss is Briar's heavy activity. (She still comes by though. She was a great reviewer and indirectly influenced me in using smiles in my posts.)
Look at the forums' past if you want to see some interesting things. Heck, when Steve joined, he was apparently more polite.
Funny things: my first PM was from Steve noting how I positively responded to criticism on my first storygame. Also, I have no recolection of Mizal at all until she got into a hillarious argument with a user named Breezy (where Malk said he was a US sniper aamd people believed him). :)
I doubt if most people realized Mizal had been a member for as long as she had since she was never very active for the reasons she already mentioned.
But yeah she didn’t stand out here until the argument with Breezy and when she brought along a bunch of people she knew (Ivy, Wiro and Axiom) none of which stuck around.
Sort of wish Breezy stuck around though since I got along with her, and it’s always fun to have moms on the site.
Yeah I was surprised about Mizal as well. I don't think I remember her from the old forum group at all.
I tend to be more polite in new situations. It works better for not pissing anyone off and getting them at your throats while you're still adjusting.
Worth noting, I'm still incredibly polite. It's just these forums have a high about of enraging idiocy, and you're all retards with shitty beliefs. Really, my main flaw is I expect too much of you all. I could give you a legitimate reason to hate pretty much everyone in the forums and why I'm better than them, barring the few exceptions to the shittiness rule.
For god's sake, I'm in the lair right now, if you've such a desperate need for my attention, just shoot. God, you're worse than Sicarius or liamjm.
Frankly, you baffle me.
Well most of the members I miss have been mentioned but I still have a soft spot for Fergie Uglick and ThisisBo. Since we all kinda joined up together and hand a barrel of fun in these forums. The only other one I can think of is Ziraka, the scripting Goddess. She was always super helpful and just plan awesome.
I am also that.
I understand the reference.
I second this 'huh'.
I think he's saying Zikara transformed into Brad.
I got bored one day, and thanks to that I can now say that some Mr. Videc is one of the oldest site members. Not sure if he's active though.
March5th00 and chocobot are probably the site's oldest members (besides Alex_p because he made the site) since they posted on the very first forum thread here.
Edit: Off topic, but if you check out Cysid's duel stats, it's "35615 wins / 35436 losses" which means people are more likely to lose against him than win.
Read the "about us" section of the Help and Info. March and choc are founders along with AlexP.
Ah, wups. I guess this would the the oldest non-founder members, according to the second forum thread that was made.
thatguy is an alt if I remember correctly. I'm not sure about Bergio.
Binladen is one of Alex's alts as well.
Honestly, while there were some cool members in the past that I wouldn’t mind still seeing active, I feel like the site in general is a lot better than it was in the “old days.”
Yeah, that seems a bit counterintuitive to a site dedicating to writing. I wonder what possesses people to do such things. Glad I missed out on that. True, the things I say aren't always useful, but at least I'm communicating in complete sentences. More or less.
Oh dear. What kind of shipping? General fanfic shipping? Site members shipping? Cross story shipping from characters on the site? Or just any and all shipping?
While a little bit of romantic speculation in fiction can be entertaining, I draw the line at real people, even if the degree of 'real' is quite variable when dealing with an online community. Because, regardless of how much of ourselves we show on a forum, we're all real people on the other side of the screen. So yes, I concur that it sounds creepy.
Who is Ford? And I probably shouldn't ask how you all came to that conclusion.
"Chanbot" is Ford.
Ah, okay. Thank you for the answer.
Shipping threads and their encouragement were definitely more of a Bad Mod Kiel era war crime.
Yup. Now we just have good and wholesome shitposting.
Drakillian was someone I remember pretty well. Probably because of the game forum or whatever it was called so we were quite frequently rping together. But him and a couple others dont really show up since they've moved to BZ's roleplaying site. He was about the only person I've ever spoken to regularly on this site.
I forget names easy so thats the only one that I can think of but Ive heard of most of the others, if not all that people are naming.
Drak! The villain! He burned down my tavern while I was gallivanting about with a couple who thought they wanted a unicorn, fighting with the site on my old phone. Super good phone, will have to see if I can get it up & running again. Tactile keyboard would be nice for some modes, I think. ^_^
Pretty sure Drak is doing well. Off at college, has/had a girlfriend, all those cishet things. 8_9
Dunno if Drak & I are on speaking terms. I remember a very long-winded communique on my side, and a very short answer from his. But Drak? In the spirit of aikido, if you ever wanna throw down, you can come find me. ^_~
Also, first and only confirmed kill in my Game.
I remember the tavern. And the tournaments. I remember him basically rage quitting a vampire rp after the first (and only finished fight) ended.
You had quite a few games. Was the bunny and slime simulator both yours? The bunny one was right? That one was awesome
Nope! Credit where credit is due, Rabbit Simulator was Swiftstryker’s work. Unsure on slimes, might’ve missed that one.
I ran the Tavern, then an offshoot expedition into a pocket dimension, and (off-site, but with players recruited here) The Liminal Academy.
Ooh, I missed that. What happened?
He basically melted down and started spamming insults at everyone. Still not exactly sure what his problem was, but there really wasn’t any point in keeping him here if he was obviously that unhappy with the place.
So the usual tale.
I can't remember if I was one of those involved with the tavern burning down or not....
Yeah, I really wish those threads hadn’t been vaporized... I wanna say it was you, but damned if I can even remember who you were playing.
I think it was a half demon dude or something along those lines. Its been a long time if I cared I really wanted I could probably go through my PMs and find it.
